Balcony cabin for 7 nights cruise only £199! Can that be possible?

Sometimes we see offers that look too good to be true... Royal Caribbean Jewel of the Seas from Dubai on the 16th December 2019. But this one was actually available for a little while and did exist until they sold all the cabins.... Then we still had hundreds of calls…

Why are Visa’s to China so Complicated?

I chose to travel to China on an escorted tour back in 2007 visiting Beijing, Xi'an, Shanghai, Yangtze River cruise, terracotta Warriors, Great Wall, Forbidden City and much much more. As I was working in Switzerland at the time my Chinese visa was applied for at Bern, the capital of…

Cabin Stewards deserve to be treated…. Better

Is it just me.... Or do you want your cabin steward to get some time off? They are the friendliest crew and happy to serve. They always have a smile and ask how your day has been. I know it is mad, but when I sail, on any ship I…

Cruise adverts for someone who is new to cruise… Confusing or what….

Just tell me your best price please! Why can cruise ships not have a standard way of pricing that goes throughout the industry? The cruise companies realise cruisers are all intelligent people. Doctors, teachers, actors, motor racing drivers, builders, electricians, sales people to name a few of the working ones.…

Ending it all on a cruise. Sad but true.

I really feel for everyone who has known the 252 People who have jumped from ships to end their pain and loneliness over the last 17 years. Nobody, really can say what makes a person feel so desperate to take their own life, but jumping from a ship fully clothed…
